    you know your country when
    the sleds double as shallow watering troughs in the summer

    when you use every thing from large butter tubs to fabric softener bottle (with the bottoms cut out) as feed scoops

    Isn't it funny? People are shocked to see Bandit running around the place, but we are so used to it. He's like having a big white dog with horns.

    He'll lay down right in front of the door and sleep. He even comes running with the cats and dogs when I throw out scraps! [​IMG]

    When you do a nightly tick check before you put the kids in the bath.
    When you take your coffee outside into the early morning light and your heart is bursting with gratitude because God actually lets you LIVE here.

    When you slide open the kitchen window and slip the muzzle of the 22/250 out to pop off a ground hog at 7:00 in the morning. Sure gets the wifes attention as she exites the barn.
